Derby County have certainly been one of the in-form Championship sides since the return from lockdown, the Rams having hit the ground running with wins in each of their last three games. The East Midlands outfit edged past Millwall to the tune of 3-2 at the Den upon their return from the enforced break and followed with further wins over Reading (2-1) and Preston North End (0-1). Indeed Derby County have won each of their last five Championship outings by an aggregate scoreline of 12-4 and as a result, punters have been piling into them on the betting markets.



Before the restart of the campaign, the Rams were a massive 100/1 to win promotion to the Premier League at the end of the season, however they are now the most heavily backed side in the second tier. The bookmakers have reacted by slashing their odds on winning promotion, BetVictor going as low as 12/1 that they find themselves in the top-tier in 2020/21.



On the back of this upturn in fortunes, the Rams have soared up the Championship table where they now sit in seventh position. Just a single point separates them from sixth-placed Cardiff City as things stand and there will be a real sense of belief that they can haul themselves firmly into play-off contention between now and the close of the campaign.

The Rams do have a very tough run-in which includes meetings with the likes of Leeds United, Brentford and Leeds United, three sides which are becoming embroiled in a battle for an automatic promotion berth. Nevertheless Derby will have confidence that they can get the better of anyone in the division and there is a big chance that they can continue their impressive play-off bid.

Should they continue this sensational form, then Philip Cocu’s men could find themselves in the Premier League next season.
